How to Remove Eyelash Extensions

 Are you about to remove your eyelash extension by yourself I would advise not to do so yourself but look for a professional to get it done for you in order to prevent damage to your natural eyelash which might have an adverse effect on the next eyelash extension you fix on your lash.

Ensure you take it to the salon where the lash was fixed initially because if you take it elsewhere the probability that it will be rejected is high, therefore endeavor to always use a beautician parlor or salon that fixed the eyelash extensions for you.

Mink Eyelash Extensions

Mink eyelash extensions are the most common used false eyelash extension and they are the most expensive on the market. Although they come in strip lashes and are applied when needed.

The invention and use of false eyelashes began in 1916 when director D.W. Griffith was making his film Intolerance. He wanted actress Seena Owen to have lashes "that brushed her cheeks, to make her eyes shine larger than life."

The first false eyelashes were made of human hair woven through fine gauze by a local wig maker. They were then attached to Owen's eyes. This  was the genesis of how eyelash extension was invented as fashion accessory and ever since people have been wearing them.

But in recent times the use of eyelash extensions has seen an unprecedented development where several types of extensions like mink which have become popular because of the natural look it adds to peoples eyes.

Celebrities are heavy users of mink eyelash extensions and the reason is because it makes their eyeballs stand out and beautiful. Mink lashes are not made from artificial materials such as fibers but they are brushed and collected from the fur of a mink which explains the softness and natural characteristics it exhibit when applied to the face.

To purchase mink lashes you will have to shell out between $100 to $300 and it might cost as high as $500 in some salon because application and retouch fee are added to them. If taken care properly it might take 4 weeks before you come in to replace the fallen ones, it falls off because they are glued to your natural eyelashes and the moment your natural eyelash falls off the mink lash goes along with it. 

If you are looking to purchase this unique eyelash extension you can check your local salon for purchase.

First time users of eyelash extension think it takes eternity for an artificial eyelash to fall off, they are wrong because from the moment your artificial lash is fixed if care is not taken and you scrub your eyes they might fall off because at this stage the adhesive glue used in holding this lashes in place is still not in a solid state. therefore it is important for people to be careful the moment you have this lashes on.This thing can be expensive, so  care is needed.

Permanent Eyelash Extensions How Good Is It

Permanent eyelash extensions have become the new fashion fad now because it is easy to maintain. This eyelash extension can only be achieved through surgical means, patients are required to choose how full they want their eyelash which will also indicate the number of hair that will be transplanted into the follicle in this region. These hair are removed from the back of their scalp like it is done during a normal hair transplant and implanted into the follicles on the eyelash.

After surgical procedure is accomplished it takes close to a month for the region worked on to be fully healed and for hair to start growing normally on this region which will give it a fuller and longer eyelash which will also give you a sexy appeal.

one of the advantages of this procedure is that you get to trim and curl this eyelashes at will because it grows back easily unlike the semi permanent eyelash that takes you to an extensionist every two weeks to re-fix the part of your eyelash that has fallen off because the artificial eyelashes are placed one after the other on a strand of eyelashes which means that when your natural lashes fall off the artificial one attached on it also falls off.

Cost of Procedure

The permanent eyelash extension is a costly one, for this procedure to be done you will have to spend between $3000 to $5000 for me, this is money well spent because of the advantage it has over semi permanent ones.

If you have the cash then go for this procedure to have a permanent eyelash extension done and have at the back of your mind the usual surgical dangers such as infections.

Well the magic to having such long,fuller and lush eyelash is due to what is called eyelash extensions.

 Why An Eyelash Extension?
unlike the old type of artificial extension that only goes off within 6 days of fixing it, the recent artificial extension takes close to six to eight weeks before it falls off. it last longer because each strand of lash is placed on your natural eyelash strand by strand with the help of a soft artificial adhesive. This alone saves a lot in cost and time because you don't really need to visit the salon weekly to re-fix since the one you last fixed fell off. it is advisable you look for a professional to get it done for you instead of doing it yourself, you can look around for eyelash salons around your neighborhood to fix it for you if you cant locate one ask around by asking friends or associate where it can be done.
